    My son is a fruit freak(which i know is a good thing) but at the moment he is going through a few bags of oranges and bananas a week and gets in a strop if he doesnt have them!!

    Now this may sound silly but is eating this amount of fruit good for him??

    for example hes eaten 6 oranges this morning!!!!!

    nutritionally theres nothing wrong with that. but oranges are very acidic and that many may be bad for teeth. ask ur dentist about it :)

    Lydia loves fruit too. She's wolfed down 4 plums, 1 apple, and 12 cherry tomatoes already today, and she'll be wanting more later when she wakes from her nap!

    He'll poop through the eye of a needle... :rotfl: Oranges contain vast quantities of fibre... So be warned... he might have a little tummy ache...

    Other than that... let him eat as much fruit as he wants tbh... its good to encourage this behaviour...any extra vitamins and minerals will be chucked out by his body anyway... and he should have an immune system like Fort Knox.... :)
